Walking in Guangzhou, Part 3 with Random Guangzhou

28 03 2017

Here is my final post on my not-so-recent-anymore China trip.  All pix from Guangzhou.





Walking in Guangzhou, Part 2, the Shamian Island

27 03 2017

More from walking in the city of Guangzhou, China and this from the “Shamian Island” where my hotel was situated.  Due to what the island served as (as indicated in the previous link), the overall architecture is very grand and colonial though now mostly decorated with Chinese signs for hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, and sometimes government offices.

Visiting a Mosque in Guangzhou, China

21 03 2017

The Huaisheng Mosque, in Guangzhou, China is believed to be one of the oldest mosques not just in China but in the world.

It was during a prayer hour when I went and regardless I never know if it’s right to go into a mosque so my photos have been taken from a distance.

A grocer across the street from the mosque. Fresh lamb

A market nearby selling halal meat.





To the Fish Market! in Guangzhou, China

20 03 2017

The fish market in Guangzhou, China is wholesale/retail put together.  It’s a wonder they were open during the Chinese New Year holidays when I went. Huge live turtles and shellfish as well as chopped crocodiles were the most impressive.  ^^

 

 





To Market! in Guangzhou, China

19 03 2017

I was very surprised to find this local retail market open on the new year’s day in Guangzhou, China during my recent visit.  It was in the afternoon and I don’t think everything was open so not a lot of action going on but still impressively stocked with meats, fish, and vegetables as well as more curious variety of creatures such as crocodiles, live snakes, and Chinese softshell turtles.





Seeking Noodles in Guangzhou, China

18 03 2017

My memory of my Guangzhou, China trip from the end of January is somewhat fading away and I cannot exactly remember why I ended up in this Hokkien noodle shop which was not the most local in the style of cooking and I try to eat local.  I just remember that I was set to eat noodles in a simple eatery where locals went and this was just that.
